There have been massive destruction of buses and public property and shops. Violence is no way to resolve issues. Negotiation is the way forward. There is loss of production and commercial activity, every time a city shuts down due to agitations. I spoke to many people asking them what were the demands of the Nobody is able to give me a clear reply. What are the agitating for? From the pictures, it is clear that many of the agitators were young men. The must focus on creating in the country. Prime Minister had pledged that his will concentrate on job creation. If young men are working in the offices and factories, then they will not take to the streets for arson.
